Bird supplies were on sale at the local Ace. That, plus our senior discount, given even though the cut-off is 62 and neither one of us is quite 62, meant we filled the cart. 

At dusk
We hang the bird feeders
With our senior discount:
Thistle seeds
For the finches;
Suet and seed
For the wider variety.
This morning the suet cage
Swings open,
No suet to be seen.
Six squirrels play chase,
Tease a neighbor cat,
Energy abundant.
We think to return
The suet cage,
Demand a new suet cake.
But no
But now
We see the squirrels
